We were really excited to secure a space to be part of the annual Pride March in London this year with a group of over 25 of our Rapport Ambassadors enthusiastically marching alongside many other supportive companies.

At Rapport, we’re committed to creating an inclusive workplace where everyone can be themselves, including our lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer (LGBTQ+) ambassadors.

Supporting LGBTQ+ inclusion isn’t just the right thing to do. An inclusive workplace enables us to embrace the diverse backgrounds and perspectives of all our people to create better teams and outcomes for our diverse range of clients.

This year’s Pride in London parade was the biggest and most diverse yet, with over 30,000 people from all parts of the LGBTQ+ community marching through the capital to celebrate, protest and stand up for equality.

600 groups – a 25 per cent increase on last year – walked the route from Portland Place down to Whitehall, via Regent Street, Piccadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. The theme for this year’s Parade was the Pride Jubilee, marking 50 years since the Stonewall Uprising: the moment which sparked the modern Pride movement. Parade groups honoured 50 years of activism, protests and victories that have made Pride what it is today.

Holding our specially designed Rapport banner and T-shirts with a new Rapport logo specially commissioned to support Pride, our team had a brilliant day. Cedric Tomas, one of the Rapport organising committee commented “I could not be prouder to see our Rapport ambassadors taking part in such an amazing event and seeing everyone inspired to be themselves, standing up for their rights, as well as having great fun”

Head of HR for Rapport, Natasha Whitehurst added “We’re working hard to increase the engagement and participation of our LGBTQ+ people, by building and enhancing a culture where everyone feels included”

We look forward to even more of our Rapport Ambassadors joining us for the 2020 march next year!
